John West premieres video for 'Lovely'

John_west releases his new video for Lovely
John West, the Third Street Promenade performer we profiled earlier this year, premiered the music video for "Lovely," the first single taken from his as-yet-untitled label debut Thursday.

For the last four years, West has been a force on the promenade, where he's fine-tuned his brand of acoustic/urban alternative pop that suggests Justin Timberlake and Jack Johnson. After selling more than 35,000 copies of three independently released EPs, he caught the attention of Mercury/Island Def Jam, where he inked a record deal.

"Lovely," a promenade favorite, got a facelift from producer Christian Rich. The syrupy ode to love is part of a three-song bundle the singer recently released to tease the album.

West is on the road supporting Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, with a stop in San Diego on Thursday.
